Common Mistakes Denture-Wearers Make

Where can I get Treasure Coast Dentures?

Anyone struggling with damaged or missing teeth couldn’t overstate how much Treasure Coast dentures can change a person’s life. A good set of dentures allows you to enjoy your favorite food, speak clearly, and feel confident about the way you look. However, if you want your new teeth to last, you should know how to take care of them.

What Denture-Wearers Shouldn’t Do

Brushing Less

You can’t make the most out of your dentures if you don’t treat them like your natural teeth. this means that you shouldn’t forget to use a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush them at least twice a day for about two minutes. If you still have any of your natural teeth left, continue using toothpaste with fluoride and remember to gently brush your gum and tongue to get rid of bacteria.

Brushing Your Dentures Roughly

You can extend your dentures’ life if you use water to rinse them well and a non-abrasive denture cleanser. The adhesive that’s used to connect your dentures to your mouth should be removed to avoid buildup. Gently clean your dentures with a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid scratching them.

Letting Your Dentures Dry When You Take Them Out

Leaving your dentures to dry will cause warping, which changes the way they fit in your mouth. When you take your dentures out, be sure to soak them in water if they have metal clasps on them. If they don’t, you submerge them in a special cleaning solution.

Consuming Teeth-Staining Foods And Drinks

Anything that can stain a white shirt can leave stains on your dentures. The most common stain offenders include red wine, coffee, tea, soy sauce, tomato-based sauces, and dark-colored sodas. If you notice stains on your dentures, be sure to talk with your dentist right away.

Avoiding Caution

Since your dentures can easily break, make sure that you place a folded towel on the sink when you’re cleaning your dentures.
